Flip Jansen – the Aprilfeest paper bags
April 13 – May 3, 2019 in Café Bern
The legendary festivities on Amsterdam’s Nieuwmarkt, during one week at the end of Aprll (in Dutch: ‘Aprilfeesten’), are a tradition that has been carried on for already 32 years. Or is it 33 years? Nobody knows for sure.
During the first years, posters were being printed to announce the ‘Aprilfeesten’. But 1996 was the first year of the intriguing ‘Aprilfeest paper bags’. They have been around ever since and have become true collector’s items. Every year Flip Jansen creates a new linocut
From 4:00-6:00 p.m. you can come and see the exhibition at your ease. Or late at night, after 11:00 p.m., when the rather busy dinner time has finished and a lovely relaxed “after hours” atmosphere has descended on Café Bern.
